Locarno and its dreamy gardens in winter

Benefit from Ticino’s mild winter days and enjoy the sun by the poetic shores of Lago Maggiore.

The gardens by the shoreside promenade of Lago Maggiore, which leads from Locarno to Tereno via Muralto, are an attractive excursion destination. A walk of approximately 1.5 kilometres leads you from the Pioda gardens to the Rusca gardens and on to the Jean Arp gardens, where you can admire works by the artist of the same name. Let yourself be enchanted by the wintry gardens, bask in the sun, admire the blue lake and round off your excursion beneath the winter sun with a break at a restaurant, pastry shop or bar along the promenade.
